Teira Woods Vineyard Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Daughters Thea and Keira inspired the name of this winery founded in 2002 by Daniel Donahoe and Alexis Woods. Their Sauvignon Blanc shows classic Sancerre-like aromas of minerals, lemon zest, and citrus on the nose. Light and crisp on the attack, the mid-palate shows strong and viscous tropical fruit notes of kiwi, grapefruit and tangerine. Balance, weight and elegance are key descriptors of this wine. Light, crisp and dry, this wine finishes extremely clean with a bright acidity. 100% stainless steel.
